Two Ghibli created shorts about the happenings in a fictional animation studio, presumably based to some extent on their own.


The first was aired during a TV special about Ghibli, the second shown in theatres alongside 'The Cat Returns'. Note that the animation studio in these shorts is not spelled ジブリ (hepburn: 'jiburi'), but ギブリ (hepburn: 'giburi'), so pronounced with the hard 'gi' of 'give' rather than the 'ji' of 'jigsaw' used for Ghibli.

Ghiblies is a two part short made by, guess who, Studio Ghibli. It tells the story of a animation company doing well, their jobs. Sort of. What we have here is a quick and extremely enjoyable project by Studio Ghibli in which they poke fun at themselves. It's light on story, in fact there hardly even is one, but what you get is still very nice. The art is impressive (especially in the second episode) and the sound does its job just fine.

It's hard to describe Ghiblies. Technically it isn't the best, but you can feel the joy ...

This is essentially a two-part animated short by Studio Ghibli. It is cute but not story-packed. For some reason, the start of episode 2 is in 3D but goes to 2D the entire way through after the first minute.

Episode 1 is basically just an introduction to the characters and a little bit about them, you are shown their personalities and the kinds of things they get up to in their fictional studio, and a little about their private life.

Episode 2 starts with a little side-story for comedy purposes but then shows a childhood flashback and shows how one of the characters has developed over time ...

-plot:they did a good job with narration
-plot: they explained how they were different then others (originality)
-art: art matched plot during dream/reminiscing moments
-sound: audio was fine with no annoyances
-plot: was very accurate to some regard. Seeing how they were basing this on what they do for a living the slight clips of real events (non drawings) boosted the vibe they were going for.
-comedy: in some slim cases i was able to chuckle.
